I desperately needed to charge so I went to a nearby CHAdeMO charger. My car had about 18% charge when I started, and charging stabilized at just under 18kW. They’ve replaced the EVSE since I was last here, and so I first thought this was a limitation of the new equipment (it’s pegged at 50 A).
But the nameplate on the EVSE says output is 300-500 V, 125 A max.
So, is my car limiting charging? Is there anything I can do to get it to charge faster?
It’s 68 F out. My car has 10,000 mi. It is definitely charged at 104 A before.
